Ten answers to ten questions in 20 words or fewer. That’s less time than it takes to burn a match*.
(*Depending on the length of the match and your tolerance for burned fingers, obviously)
1) What about the prompt inspired you to write your winning piece? I thought that for there to be something new, something else needed to be destroyed.
2) How long have you been writing flash? About 3 months.
3) What do you like about flash? I feel accomplished for finishing a work, and often my flash stories serve as seedlings for larger pieces of fiction.
4) What flash advice would you give other writers? Pay attention to language. You don’t have a lot of words to work with. Make every one count.
5) Who is a writer we should follow, and why? Gordon White. He’s a wonderful writer, and his feedback helped me get my first story (flash!) accepted for publication.
7) What other forms do you write (novels, poetry, articles, etc)? I write short stories and I have a few wannabe novels in various states of disrepair.
8) What is/are your favorite genre(s) to write, and why? Horror – my mind wanders into dark alleys, always asking “what’s the worst that could happen?” I write down the answers.
9) Tell us about a WIP. I’m working on a short story about a doctor forced to consider the virtues of alternative medicine when fighting disease.
10) How do you feel about dragons? I love them. Growing up, my friends at school called me The Dragon Woman.
